  • Moisture Monitoring for SF6 / Air Circuit Breakers

    SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride ) or air is used as an insulation gas in circuit breakers . Excess moisture in these gases causes arcing, which can trip the circuit breaker and cut off power to the distribution network. More seriously, such arcing can lead to physical damage of equipment and, on occasion, death of plant operatives (please ask for our case study on circuit breakers).

  • Gas detection analyzers for coil coating industry

    Coil Coating is a high-temperature solvent vapor monitoring application in which rolls of aluminum or steel are coated with a color finish, oven cured to desired specs and sold to makers of cans, rain gutters, home appliances, building & automotive products and other fabrications. Coil coating requires the use of our PrevEx Flammability Analyzers to monitor the flammability of the solvent vapor driven off during the drying process. PrevEx analyzers accurately measure solvent mixtures and can withstand the temperatures required to prevent sample clogging in coil coating plants.

  • Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Monitoring in Air

    Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a colorless gas that is used extensively in industrial applications. Fluoride monitoring is especially needed for aluminum plants that need to convert HF into fluorine for use in their processes. Any HF that escapes is a cost to the plant, so an HF analyzer is essential to keep track of and prevent the losses.

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.

    This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.

    Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

    Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

    Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.
